Events and Meetups
Events in March 2016
Calling all emerging heritage professionals―let's meet at Lithgow, 18 March 2016! Lithgow, NSW, might not immediately come to mind as a meeting point for a group of emerging heritage professionals to gather, yet it will be the venue to kick things off for 2016 as part of the National Scientific Committee on Cultural Landscapes and Cultural Routes. The National Scientific Committee in addition to the International Scientific Committee on Cultural Landscapes, are looking to future-proof their membership, while engaging fresh perspectives on the study and conservation of cultural landscapes. Both groups are made up of ICOMOS members (Australia & International), who undertake research, develop conservation theory, guidelines, practice notes, charters, and promote the exchange of ideas on cultural landscapes. Ideally, the emerging heritage professionals event is focussed on ICOMOS members with less than ten years heritage experience, students studying heritage topics, and ICOMOS young professionals http://australia.icomos.org/get-involved/youngearly-career-professionals/. The Lithgow dinner and drinks is also an opportunity for anyone new to Australia ICOMOS and the National Scientific Committee to meet up and get to know some of the group's more established members while sharing in debates about the nature (and culture) of cultural landscapes! There will be further emerging heritage professionals events in 2016, so keep an eye out for more details as they come to hand!
